Top Ten Tuesday is a thing where we get given a topic, and we have to list our ‘top ten’ things for the topic. Pretty self-explanatory.
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This Week’s Topic: Top Ten Book Related Problems
1. Buying ALL THE BOOKS
I run out of money quite quickly when I do this.
2. Borrowing ALL THE BOOKS
I have this bad habit of binge-borrowing books, and then I don’t have time to read them all before they’re due back.
3. Requesting ALL THE BOOKS
Ahh, Netgalley, such a wonderful website.
The problem is, I request 5 books in the hope of getting accepted for one.
Then I get accepted for all five.
4. Having nothing to read
Now, I KNOW I’m not the only one here. So many books on the TBR pile, and yet you just don’t know which book you’re in the mood for.
5. Wanting to read everything
So many books, so little time.
6. Wanting to reread everything
I love rereading books. I think one of the main factors contributing to my not completing last years goodreads challenge that I set for myself was that I spent the majority of the year rereading Vampire Academy and Bloodlines.
7. Time, time, time
Sigh. Why can’t people see that I don’t want a social life. I just want to sit in my room and read.
8. Space, space, space
The bookshelves are filling up, and they’re only getting fuller.
And I don’t exactly have room for more bookshelves.
The editions must match! Otherwise it ruins everything!!
You know what else ruins everything? Spending months searching for the correct edition.
10. Other people not understanding
“It’s only a book; it’s not real; look, there’s a space, just put the book there; you need to talk to people, you can’t just sit in there and read”
I think we all understand the frustration there.
